The case report of an angler with delayed onset asthma, following fishing with Calliphora (Blue Bottle) maggots, is presented. The investigations showed that the symptoms were associated with the presence of a circulating IgG antibody to a crude water soluble maggot extract. The patient progressed to develop symptoms suggestive of immune complex disease.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
